The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Championship will be coming to a head this Sunday at Homestead Miami Speedway. The five main racers in the standings for this one are Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch and Joey Logano. Even though the last 5 champions took the win for this particular race, it doesn't necessarily matter who actually crosses the finish line first for a few of these guys, they just have to beat out their fellow top 3 racers. Logano is just too far behind to win the championship at this point, though he is still doing great this year so I'd keep him in the running.
So who's going to take the championship spot? My bet is on Denny Hamlin. The guy has been absolutely killing it this year. Not only is he the top ranked racer on the track right now, but he also has two Homestead wins under his belt going into Sunday's race. He's got everything going for him right now. He just has to keep control for one more big one to get his very first championship spot.
Hamlin is the only one of the top 4 racers to be going for his first win. Harvick, Busch and Truex will all be trying to win their second titles. Even though they'll all be bringing their own skill to the race, I just don't see the win going to anyone else. Truex hasn't exactly had the best history with the track. Harvick is a bit outnumbered by Joe-Gibbs, though it won't really matter if he can keep his distance. And no matter who's at fault, Busch just can't seem to produce a well oiled team. So again, I'm going with Hamlin all the way on this one. Not that he has a perfect system in place compared to everyone else, but I hope he can keep what he has together to pull out a win.
